Save the dates October 27 through 30! The Main library is hosting its second Day of the Dead–El Dìa de Los Muertos–festivities in the Ryerson Auditorium. On Thursday, October 27, you can watch the altars being built from 4 to 8 pm. On Friday, October 28 (all day), the library auditorium will display over 20 altars built by local residents who want to share the memory of their family and friends. Every altar is unique, but taken together they create a fascinating portrait of what the citizens of Grand Rapids hold dear to them. An explanation of each altar will be provided.
On Saturday, October 29, Audacious Hoops will perform from 1 to 2, light refreshments will be served, and children are invited to decorate sugar skulls. Sunday, October 30, will be the last day to view the altars.
We do hope you’ll join us!
